Hermann Park Holiday Train Ride

Take a spin around the park on the Hermann Park Holiday Train Ride. The entire train line has been decorated for the holidays, so there’s something to see around every corner and bend. If you take a late ride, from 5 to 6 p.m., you’ll see the park lit with hundreds of holiday lights. There’s a cafe near the boarding platform so you can get some hot chocolate while you wait for the next departure. We suggest you follow the train ride with a visit to Zoo Lights, where the entire zoo has been lit and decorated.

10 a.m. to 6 p.m. December 19 to 24 and December 26 to January 4. 6201 Hermann Park Drive. For information, visit hermannpark.org. $3.25.
Dec. 19-24, 10 a.m.-6 p.m.; Dec. 26-Jan. 4, 10 a.m.-6 p.m., 2014
